Papa Dia had 17 points and 15 rebounds for his 15th double-double of the season to lead SMU to a 64-57 overtime win over Oral Roberts in the first round of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament.

SMU hadn't made a postseason appearance since the 2000 NIT and didn't have a win going back to the first round of the 1988 NCAA Tournament.

The Mustangs move on to host Jacksonville in the second round Saturday at 2 p.m.
